Stained or discolored teeth tend to reduce self-confidence, causing people to avoid smiling to hide the problem. Fortunately, there are effective solutions for unattractive and yellowed teeth. Atlantic Dental offers professional teeth whitening for our patients in Toms River, NJ, Manchester, NJ, and the surrounding areas.
Causes of Discolored Teeth
There are a variety of factors that cause teeth to stain or darken. Some causes, such as tobacco, caffeinated beverages, and foods such as berries, wine, and soy sauce can contribute to teeth whitening. In addition, certain medications, traumatic injuries, and fluorosis cause staining of the teeth. Not all causes are preventable, though; the natural darkening of the teeth also occurs with age. This happens as the enamel starts to wear away and allows the dentin in the teeth to show.
Over the counter whitening products are available, but may provide limited results or cause tooth sensitivity. A professional tooth whitening treatment is more effective in lightening the teeth, and the results can last as long as five years. However, it’s important to note that whitening agents may have limited effectiveness on brown or gray stains, and they can be less effective when the teeth are pitted. The process is only effective for natural teeth and it won’t work for lightening restorations, such as flings, bridges, or crowns.
